Beginning Wednesday, October 4, 2006, the Discovery Educator Network will be launching a semi-monthly DEN Podcast hosted by Brad Fountain, Regional Manager of the Discovery Educator Network. You can subscribe to the podcast via iTunes or you can download the podcast directly from the DEN National Blog. The initial podcast will focus on utilizing Character Education to enhance your school and will feature an interview with Dr. Merle Schwartz, Director of Education and Research for the Character Education Partnership. This ideas shared in this podcast will make a nice segue to the Character Education Webinar that will be presented on Thursday, October 5, 2006, at 4:00 p.m. Eastern time.
The second DEN podcast will air on October 18, 2006, and will focus on utilizing the Professional Development section of the unitedstreaming site for enhancing classroom instruction. This podcast will feature Lisa O’Brien, Professional Development Content Developer at Discovery Education.
At the end of each podcast, you will be encouraged to enter a competition and explore the unitedstreaming resources, the DEN website, or possibly other Discovery Education products to answer a special challenge question. Each entry must be e-mailed to the host and all correct entries will be entered into a drawing for a Special Discovery Education Prize. We think that the new DEN podcasts represent another way to share information with Discovery Educators and all unitedstreaming users, so I hope you will find some time to listen!
